building society. That's all from the BBC News at Six, so it's goodbye

:00:00.:00:00.

from me, and Good evening and welcome to BBC Look

:00:00.:00:07.

North. The headlines tonight: Two hospitals told to make urgent

:00:08.:00:12.

improvements. Inspectors say staff shortages are

:00:13.:00:14.

affecting care. Still burning after 24 hours ` why

:00:15.:00:18.

it's not safe to put this fire out yet. I don't want to put a lot of

:00:19.:00:29.

water on that might contaminate. Crowds turn out to see a victorious

:00:30.:00:32.

Scunthorpe United parade through the town.

:00:33.:00:41.

The acorns from Australia that will become hundreds of oak trees in

:00:42.:00:47.

Hull. Don't forget your detailed weather forecasts that follows in

:00:48.:00:48.

the next 15 minutes. East Yorkshire's two main hospitals

:00:49.:00:59.

have been ordered to make urgent improvements after inspectors found

:01:00.:01:01.

that staff shortages were affecting patient care. The team from the

:01:02.:01:09.

health watchdog the Care Quality Commission has also demanded action

:01:10.:01:13.

over allegations of bullying. Management at Hull Royal Infirmary

:01:14.:01:16.

and Castle Hill say they're already addressing some of the issues raised

:01:17.:01:19.

in the report. Vicky Johnson's been looking at the report. What's new

:01:20.:01:25.

about this investigation? This latest CQC inspection is one of

:01:26.:01:28.

the new`style, more thorough investigations. A team of 45

:01:29.:01:34.

specialists spent time in all the main departments at both Castle Hill

:01:35.:01:38.

hospital and the Hull Royal. While some services like critical care and

:01:39.:01:41.

maternity have been rated as "good", inspectors have identified 20 areas

:01:42.:01:44.

where the Trust must now improve. These include a review of incident

:01:45.:01:47.

reporting to ensure staff receive feedback, the cancellation of

:01:48.:01:50.

outpatient clinics must be kept to a minimum and the hospital must ensure

:01:51.:01:53.

there are sufficient qualified staff.

:01:54.:02:05.

Hull's accident and emergency is always busy, but during their

:02:06.:02:08.

three`day visit in February, inspectors found a department

:02:09.:02:13.

struggling to cope. Staff shortages were highlighted as a problem. Union

:02:14.:02:24.

leaders say they're not surprised. We know there is a shortage of

:02:25.:02:30.

qualified staff. A hospital consultant agreed

:02:31.:02:36.

staffing is an issue. We don't seem to have enough nursing staff to look

:02:37.:02:46.

after patients with lots of problems. That is what I think is

:02:47.:02:48.

the real problem. Inspectors were told that bullying

:02:49.:02:51.

was a problem, with some staff feeling pressure to put targets

:02:52.:02:56.

above patient care. Ian Philp, the Trust's chief medical director,

:02:57.:03:05.

insists this is now being tackled. We are going to commission an

:03:06.:03:09.

independent organisation to come and talk to our staff and find out what

:03:10.:03:15.

the problem is. We will not tolerate bullying in the organisation. Staff

:03:16.:03:18.

should feel they come to work and are supported to do the best they

:03:19.:03:20.

can for patients. Inspectors also criticised the

:03:21.:03:23.

practice of patients being moved between wards, often at night. But

:03:24.:03:26.

visitors to Hull Royal today were full of praise for the hospital.

:03:27.:03:33.

Excellent service all the time I have been here. I have been coming

:03:34.:03:38.

for quite awhile and I can't fault them my care. I had a heart attack

:03:39.:03:45.

last year. They kept me alive. He has had a kidney transplant, and

:03:46.:03:48.

they could not have been any better. Today's report comes just over two

:03:49.:03:51.

weeks after the former chief executive Phil Morley resigned.

:03:52.:03:54.

Officials have refused to link his departure with the criticisms made.

:03:55.:03:57.

Instead, managers say they're already working on the improvements

:03:58.:04:03.

needed. The Trust has already announced ?1

:04:04.:04:05.

million investment to recruit more nurses. Plus they're working with

:04:06.:04:10.

other organisations to tackle bullying and to improve incident

:04:11.:04:14.

reporting. Earlier I spoke to Kath Lavery from

:04:15.:04:17.

Healthwatch, who represent the interests of patients. I asked her

:04:18.:04:30.

if she was surprised by the findings of the Care Quality Commission

:04:31.:04:32.

report? With much of it, no. We've known of

:04:33.:04:40.

the pressures in A for some time. But the staff shortages problems I

:04:41.:04:44.

think were a surprise in their depth and breadth across the organisation.

:04:45.:04:47.

This is a damning report. Are the people of Hull and East Yorkshire

:04:48.:04:51.

being let down by the trust? The report does say that the staff and

:04:52.:04:54.

the organisation is very caring, they have got good screens across

:04:55.:04:58.

that indicators. They're saying the services are effective. A hospital

:04:59.:05:00.

needs three things ` a building, equipment and staff, and you haven't

:05:01.:05:04.

got the staff. They are not mine. Well, they haven't got the staff.

:05:05.:05:07.

But the staff that are there are delivering caring services that are

:05:08.:05:11.

effective, but how long can they continue to do that when they are

:05:12.:05:15.

obviously short staffed? What are you going to be doing as

:05:16.:05:19.

HealthWatch? What will you be saying to the trust? Have you got enough

:05:20.:05:32.

teeth? Yes, I think we do, and already, we have been invited in. We

:05:33.:05:36.

have been asked to be part of the solution by the new team at the

:05:37.:05:40.

acute trust, which is very good. Our job is to find out what the public

:05:41.:05:44.

think. You know what the public think about A and now they hear

:05:45.:05:48.

junior doctors are being forced to undertake procedures they are not

:05:49.:05:51.

qualified to do so. That will frighten people. I don't think they

:05:52.:05:54.

should be frightened. I think they should be ready to give their

:05:55.:05:56.

opinions when HealthWatch Kingston`upon`Hull, HealthWatch East

:05:57.:05:59.

Riding of Yorkshire Council go out there to do that in`depth survey and

:06:00.:06:02.

meeting with people. That's a talking shop. No, it's not. You've

:06:03.:06:16.

got to find out. Well, this tells you what you need. You need more

:06:17.:06:20.

people. It does, but that is the CQC's report. What we have to find

:06:21.:06:32.

out, from my point of view, is what 300,000 people in Hull think and

:06:33.:06:36.

believe and have experience of in that trust. We got to get all

:06:37.:06:39.

together, with the East Ridings findings, go into the trust and make

:06:40.:06:43.

sure that is respected when it comes to a solution. I wish you well with

:06:44.:06:55.

that. Very good to speak to you. Let us know what you think of this

:06:56.:07:02.

story. Maybe you or a member of your family has been there. If you're a

:07:03.:07:03.

patient, is your voice being heard? A ?100 million investment in

:07:04.:07:18.

Sleaford Town Centre has moved a step closer after Tesco confirmed

:07:19.:07:21.

its commitment to building a new supermarket and link road in the

:07:22.:07:28.

town. The district council says it will bring much needed investment to

:07:29.:07:31.

Sleaford, but not everyone is happy with the plans, as Jake Zuckerman

:07:32.:07:35.

reports. Sleaford's recreation ground. Land

:07:36.:07:42.

North Kesteven district council says must be sacrificed for the good of

:07:43.:07:46.

the town. It's a saga that's dragged on since 2009, when Tesco won

:07:47.:07:49.

planning permission for a new store on this disused site. In order to

:07:50.:07:53.

connect the new Tesco with the rest of the town, the company is paying

:07:54.:07:57.

for a link road that will cross the town's recreation ground ` and will

:07:58.:08:00.

also allow new flats, offices and shops to be built at the derelict

:08:01.:08:12.

bass maltings. They need a strip of land here on the recreation ground.

:08:13.:08:16.

The mature trees behind me would have to be felt, at the town council

:08:17.:08:20.

that owns the land is refusing to sell it. The district council plans

:08:21.:08:27.

to force them to sell. We would like to see Sleaford grow and develop and

:08:28.:08:41.

be the type of market Many in the town oppose the scheme, which would

:08:42.:08:46.

also see this level crossing closed to traffic. But restaurant owner

:08:47.:08:52.

Martin Crute says the scheme is long overdue. Town we want. Tesco has

:08:53.:09:07.

confirmed plans to go ahead. It's a statement of intent that

:09:08.:09:18.

gives the district council the confidence to move forward with

:09:19.:09:26.

compulsory purchase. Fire crews say they could be dealing with a fire at

:09:27.:09:29.

a recycling centre in Scunthorpe for another two days. The fire, which

:09:30.:09:38.

started yesterday evening, is now under control but there's been more

:09:39.:09:41.

disruption in the area during the day, as Simon Spark reports. The

:09:42.:09:59.

fire could be seen over ten miles away. Flames are still visible from

:10:00.:10:11.

inside the building. There are wider issues and good reasons why the Fire

:10:12.:10:16.

Service cannot simply put this out. What I don't want to do is put a lot

:10:17.:10:34.

of water on that might contaminate. It is having an effect on

:10:35.:10:37.

businesses. It is affecting everybody in the area. What can we

:10:38.:10:47.

do? Some haven't been able to open at all and can only watch and wait.

:10:48.:10:52.

The Thomson family told is that despite attempts by members of the

:10:53.:10:57.

family, the blaze took hold before the Fire Service arrived. One of the

:10:58.:11:01.

sons was treated for smoke inhalation. They say they are

:11:02.:11:06.

distraught. This evening, it is still unclear how long the Fire

:11:07.:11:15.

Service will need to stay on scene. They say it is likely to run into

:11:16.:11:21.

Thursday, possibly Friday before this fire is fully extinguished. An

:11:22.:11:31.

investigation has begun after a 77`year`old man died when his car

:11:32.:11:36.

was hit by the train on a level crossing. The train driver has been

:11:37.:11:43.

treated for shock. None of the passengers were hurt. The line was

:11:44.:11:46.

closed until early afternoon. 80 jobs could go at a turkey factory

:11:47.:11:50.

near Grimsby. Lincs Turkeys in Grainthorpe, which is owned by

:11:51.:11:53.

Bernard Matthews, is likely to close as a consultation begins with its

:11:54.:12:05.

workforce. The company says it's because of fewer Christmas orders.

:12:06.:12:08.

The farming operation in Grainthorpe will remain unchanged.

:12:09.:12:34.

It is the 10th anniversary of the sat now.

:12:35.:12:48.

Is it? We will that headline. `` we will

:12:49.:12:57.

look at the headline. There will be some patchy rain spreading north

:12:58.:13:03.

eastwards later. Before that, dry intervals but this system will push

:13:04.:13:12.

its rain late in the day. The next few days look very unsettled with

:13:13.:13:23.

heavy downpours. You can see, clouds were moving in from the West. A

:13:24.:13:28.

number of showers were pushing down the Humber area. As a general rule,

:13:29.:13:35.

most of the showers will die away by dawn. Just the odd one left by the

:13:36.:13:41.

end of the night. Lowest temperatures at 10 Celsius. That is

:13:42.:13:56.

50 degrees Fahrenheit. One or two showers are possible at first. There

:13:57.:14:02.

will be some bright intervals. Clouds gradually increasing and

:14:03.:14:07.

patchy rain in places. There will be dry and bright interludes. The fresh

:14:08.:14:16.

south`west wind will ease down tomorrow. Top temperatures, around

:14:17.:14:21.

13 for the East Riding and northern parts of Lincolnshire, and 14 for

:14:22.:14:24.

central and southern Lincolnshire into north`west Norfolk. That rain

:14:25.:14:30.

tomorrow will clear away. A brighter day on Friday but it is quite

:14:31.:14:40.

unstable. Saturday, we might have a dry start but heavy rain will spread

:14:41.:14:42.

north eastwards through the course of the day. Quite a cool day on

:14:43.:14:50.

Sunday with some showery outbreak. Peter, that is the forecast.

:14:51.:14:56.

Bobby says, Paul has more days off than Father Christmas, but it means

:14:57.:15:04.

we see more of clearly Donovan. Say nothing. See you tomorrow.

:15:05.:15:16.

Hundreds of oak trees are to be grown as part of Hull's 2017 City of

:15:17.:15:20.

Culture celebrations. The acorns to grow them are returning to the city

:15:21.:15:23.

after being gathered from trees in Western Australia. Those trees were

:15:24.:15:28.

grown by some of the first settlers there, who had taken acorns from

:15:29.:15:32.

East Yorkshire to their new home in the 1800s. Jo Makel has the story.

:15:33.:15:38.

On the other side of the world, in Western Australia, the autumn winds

:15:39.:15:48.

had shaken down hundreds of acorns. They've been gathered to be shipped

:15:49.:15:52.

to Hull, and in a way sent back to their historical home, because they

:15:53.:15:56.

come from these old oak trees near Perth. The settlers who established

:15:57.:15:59.

this farm nearly 200 years ago were from East Yorkshire. The Hardy

:16:00.:16:02.

family and other families actually left England from Hull. They brought

:16:03.:16:07.

with them acorns, from which these magnificent oak trees were

:16:08.:16:10.

propagated and grown, and we are now able to use them as a vehicle for

:16:11.:16:13.

re`establishing a cultural connection between the two places.

:16:14.:16:19.

And a few days ago, the acorns arrived. There we are. It's here at

:16:20.:16:26.

the university's botanic gardens that they'll be planted and grown.

:16:27.:16:33.

Two years ago, they successfully propagated a smaller number of

:16:34.:16:38.

saplings from Australia. Two were planted on Holme on Spalding moor,

:16:39.:16:41.

where some of the emigrants came from. This time, they're hoping to

:16:42.:16:45.

succeed with around 400, to be used in a project for the City of Culture

:16:46.:16:49.

celebrations. This is a real reminder of the past. Hull's got a

:16:50.:16:53.

remarkable number of links with every country almost in the world.

:16:54.:16:58.

We should celebrate this, especially as part of 2017. Where the trees

:16:59.:17:03.

will go hasn't been finalised, but the City of Culture organisers are

:17:04.:17:07.

working with artists and a number of environmental projects. The oak

:17:08.:17:13.

trees could form part of what they are calling Growing Gateways to the

:17:14.:17:16.

City. It fits with the international dimensional to the programme, it

:17:17.:17:23.

fits with the legacy. It is fantastic. It's absolutely lovely,

:17:24.:17:28.

but it's kind of unusual. It's a slightly quirky sort of situation.

:17:29.:17:36.

Hull tends to celebrate its quirkiness, and these acorns not

:17:37.:17:39.

only bring history full circle but will provide a lasting reminder of

:17:40.:17:52.

2017. The southbound carriageway of the Humber Bridge is closed due to

:17:53.:17:56.

an overturned car. Emergency services are at the scene at the

:17:57.:18:01.

moment and there is queueing traffic. Five people been taken to

:18:02.:18:05.

hospital as a precaution after the wrong mixture of chemicals was put

:18:06.:18:08.

into a hotel swimming pool and Lincolnshire. There is concern in

:18:09.:18:13.

health dangerous fumes. Fire crews were called to the hotel in Louth at

:18:14.:18:19.

four o'clock this afternoon. The hotel was close but has now

:18:20.:18:26.

reopened. Steve Bruce says Matthew fired is pushing for a starting

:18:27.:18:30.

place in the FA Cup final. All city lost last night Manchester United.

:18:31.:18:35.

They have one match left of the Premier League campaign before

:18:36.:18:41.

attention turns their biggest match of the season against Arsenal at

:18:42.:18:46.

Wembley. Everybody wants to play in an FA Cup final. The last thing you

:18:47.:18:50.

want is to go in injured. Human nature kicks in. We can't wait. We

:18:51.:18:57.

were disappointed at the weekend. We want to perform well and prove we

:18:58.:19:03.

can play at this level. We have still got games to do and want to do

:19:04.:19:09.

as well as we possibly can. It is unfortunate we were on the losing

:19:10.:19:12.

side. Two swimmers from Lincoln have been named in the England squad for

:19:13.:19:15.

this summer's Commonwealth Games in Glasgow. Lizzie Simmonds and Sophie

:19:16.:19:18.

Allen will both compete in the games which start in July. It will be

:19:19.:19:21.

Simmonds' second Commonwealth Games after winning a silver in Delhi four

:19:22.:19:31.

years ago. Thanks for getting in touch after we

:19:32.:19:35.

told you Hull's City of Culture team says it will give work to Hull`based

:19:36.:19:38.

firms, despite criticism it's using a London`based recruitment firm to

:19:39.:19:42.

fill its three top jobs. Hull City Council is paying a national company

:19:43.:19:45.

?60,000 to find a chairperson, a programme director and a chief

:19:46.:19:48.

executive. Here are just a few of your comments.

:19:49.:20:51.

attend a civic reception at Normanby Hall. The trophy was presented to

:20:52.:20:55.

the team in front of hundreds of fans. From here, they boarded buses

:20:56.:21:00.

for an open top two of the town. Russ Wilcox told Simon Spark how

:21:01.:21:04.

important today is for the players and the fans. It is a special day

:21:05.:21:08.

for everybody. smiling from ear to ear ever since.

:21:09.:21:34.

Yes. It has been a crazy week. A very enjoyable week. Topped off

:21:35.:21:39.

nicely fight tonight. What do you have two say to the people of

:21:40.:21:43.

Scunthorpe? Just thanks for your support. They are the life and soul

:21:44.:21:48.

of the football club. People move on but the supporters don't. They are

:21:49.:21:51.

born Scunthorpe fans and they die scum pop fans. `` they die

:21:52.:22:04.

Scunthorpe fans. We have a few pictures of the team on board the

:22:05.:22:11.

buses. You can see a full report later. That will be in our late

:22:12.:22:20.

reports at 10:25pm. Thank you for the pictures that are already in.

:22:21.:22:26.

Let's get a recap of the national and regional headlines.

:22:27.:22:31.

Britain's sending a small number of military experts to Nigeria, as more

:22:32.:22:34.

countries offer to help find more than 200 missing school girls. East

:22:35.:22:38.

Yorkshire's two main hospitals are told to make urgent improvements.

:22:39.:22:41.

Inspectors say staff shortages are affecting care.

:22:42.:22:41.

Tomorrow's weather: a big response on the story we had

:22:42.:23:04.

at the top of the programme, the report from the Care Quality

:23:05.:23:08.

Commission, the damning report looking at two hospitals in the

:23:09.:23:15.

area. Steve says, the easy answer is get rid of government targets and

:23:16.:23:19.

get the government to stop forming the government to stop performing

:23:20.:23:21.

unneeded commissions and committees because that could pay for extra

:23:22.:23:29.

staff. Malcolm says, I had heart surgery at Castle Hill three years

:23:30.:23:32.

ago, always super attention from staff and enough staff to cope, I am

:23:33.:23:41.

still good many thanks to them. Karen says, my mother was admitted

:23:42.:23:45.

to the whole Royal infirmary last year and the level of care she

:23:46.:23:49.

received was appalling on three different occasions `` my mother was

:23:50.:23:54.

admitted to the Hull Royal infirmary. She left with no help.

:23:55.:24:05.

She lost ?12 in weight over three months. Sarah said, I have been in

:24:06.:24:07.

Castle Hill and received excellent care, in 2009 I was rushed into

:24:08.:24:15.

their Hull Royal infirmary, where they said my life. Andrea says I was

:24:16.:24:21.

sent home with a migraine, saying I was sure it was a glaucoma task. I

:24:22.:24:29.

could have lost my sides. It is appalling.

:24:30.:24:34.

Thank you for those. We will continue to follow the story. The

:24:35.:24:43.

party is continuing at Normanby Hall as Scunthorpe United enjoyed a civic

:24:44.:24:50.

reception. They seemed unlikely last November when Brian Laws was sacked

:24:51.:24:57.

and Russ Wilcox was left in charge. We will remind ourselves of the

:24:58.:25:00.

highlights of an incredible season. See you tomorrow. I don't think I

:25:01.:25:15.

need to apply. They have seen what they have seen. Over the moon. Russ

:25:16.:25:22.

Wilcox, get in there. Fantastic feeling. Unbelievable. We knew we

:25:23.:25:28.

had a good group. They are the life and soul of the

:25:29.:26:01.

club. They are born Scunthorpe fans and die Scunthorpe fans.

:26:02.:26:22.

'This is the story of Nick Clegg - a man entrusted by a nation

:26:23.:26:27.

'to act upon the policies he proposed.
